Edinson Cavani has dealt Manchester United a transfer blow by admitting he is unlikely to leave Paris St Germain at the end of the season, according to the Metro.

Cavani’s future has been the subject of intense speculation over the past few weeks, with David Moyes keen to make the Uruguayan his marquee signing of the summer.

But despite reports suggesting Cavani has split with his wife and become unsettled in France, the former Napoli man insists he is happy to stay in the French capital.

“I don’t know why people are saying I’m not happy at PSG – it’s not true,” Cavani told reporters.

“What we talk about in the dressing room should stay there and the private life of a football player has to remain private.

“I am feeling well in Paris and at PSG.”

The news will come as a blow to Manchester United manager David Moyes, who had been targeting Cavani as a priority signing in the summer.

Javier Hernandez is likely to leave Old Trafford in the summer, whilst Robin Van Persie’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks, with the Dutchman struggling for form and fitness this season.
